"Good vegetarian" and "Goa" are hard to reconcile!
However I have tried the vegetarian restaurant at Fidalgo Hotel in Panjim, excellent. Most restaurants will have vegetarian dishes also, unless you are finicky about the kitchen also doing meat/fish at the same time.

Thanks filcord. I personally dont mind eating in a veg/non-veg place, but the wife (ideally) prefers pure veg restaurants.

Avanti is still good, Copper Bowl also, Ernesto's has changed location , it's in Panjim, call them at 9823015921 for excellent beef, pork and pasta, Fiesta, Horseshoe and J&A's are still of a high standard, as are Ritz Classic, Venite Viva Panjim and Zeebop (the latter is more of a status trip, prices are high, but you rub shoulders with the bold and beautiful!)
Rest are still to be tried.

There was another thread on this, IIRC, on which I had posted some of the hidden, downmarket kinds.

EDIT: Got it. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/route-...tml#post991410

Quick update on my return from Goa, there is detailed write up in the travelogue section.
1. Lila - brilliant!
2. St Anthony - big let down
3. Brittos - likewise, the desserts are not as good as they look!
4. Le poisson rouge - top class fine dining, quiet and calm
5. Infantaria - as always, great vfm, consistent taste
6. The Copper bowl - the best prawn curry rice I have had in a while
7. Cafe Chocolatti - closed for some reason?
8. Fiesta - good, but way too busy and cramped feeling
9. Ritz classic - very very good, fresh seafood
10. Bomra's - as good as always
No more time to explore other options! But I have to say, that Chaitanya in Malvan is as good as the best of these, at prices that are comparable to those at the Ritz in Panjim.

Cafe Tato, near to Panaji Church.

They do serve good vegetarian meals.

Small place but the food is good.

Fidalgo like filcord said is quite good. There is a Kamat in Panaji - but then...

Adding to the not so well known places (read costly) is Gazali also very close to Panaji Church. Food as good as available in Ritz Classic but like 40% cheaper. Along the same road was located Chicky Chocky - our hangout in college days - used to serve some awesome steaks. It is now closed though.

Anyone been to Tilve's near Ponda, awesome sea food. Right up there with some of the best in Goa.

Also for the best Cafreal in Goa head towards Caranzalem Church and ask for Peter's Gaddo - he sells his stuff on a handcart. Available only after 19:00 and in limited quantity.

Everyone has probably been to all the known places in Goa. I will try and add the not so well known or publicised ones, which are equally good and sometimes far better.

Spitfire, I forgot road names. So please correct if I am wrong

There is a small place named Ritz (not the classic one), in a small lane off road from the front of the circle to the mandovi river. A quick, cheap fish & beer place. Always crowded though.

Cross Goa Medical College when coming from Panjim, about a little more than a kilometre later a small road runs off to the right. Leads to shiridaum (?). Small shack, not too crowded. You get only goan food, but nice ambience with waves breaking below the small plateau sort of thing on which it is situated.

This is one of the two original "Ritz"es in Panaji, the same owners. They started off with these and made enough money to start Classic Ritz.

The other one is next to the Panaji Municipal Garden right opposite to the Tanisq Jewelery Showroom.

shiridaum (?).
Its Shiridao or a better landmark is after Bambolim Beach resort coming from Dona Paula side.

I know the guy who runs it. He cant serve liquor, you still get it there though.

We used to use his wares to barbecue on Shiridao beach late in the night. Ah.. memories...

You should try shenane fry there, one of the best.

My mouth is watering now.
